DISADVANTAGE BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE) PROGRAM INFORMATION


The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), through its operating administrations which include Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Federal Transit Administration, distributes in excess of $20 billion annually throughout the nation to help finance thousands of projects across the country. Although a major portion of the funds is allocated for highway construction, funds are also provided to local public transit authorities, including the District, for mass transit projects. The DOT DBE Program provides a vehicle for increasing the participation by disadvantaged businesses in these procurements.

The main objectives of the DBE Program are:

  • To ensure that small DBE firms can compete fairly for federally funded transportation-related projects.
  • To ensure that only eligible firms participate as a DBE firm.
  • To assist DBE firms in competing outside of the DBE Program.

In order for small disadvantaged firms, including those owned by minorities and women, to participate as a DBE in DOT-assisted contracts, they must apply for and receive certification as a DBE. For the state of California, DBE certification is performed by the certifying agencies of the California Unified Certification Program (CUCP).  For more information visit: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/bep/
